Strelets Boers


They have chunky and exaggerated poses, but on the plus side every single figure has a different pose.

You can see a full review of the figures on the excellent Plastic Soldier Review website

Work in Progress - Roving Reporters

A set of "Newsteam" figures I have on the workbench at the moment.

The figures are Hasegawa hard plastic US Airforce Ground Crew with some simple modifications and an Esci/Italeri NATO Ground Crew figure.



The war-weary reporter's van in the background is a Made-in-China toy.

Looking at the photo now, I think I went a bit over the top with the weathering, it's filthy dirty - and those toy-like wheels will probably need replacing too..........

Figure Conversions - White Glue “Trousers”

Examples of two selected British WWII 8th Army figures in shorts before modifications.

 

Figures with shorts trimmed down and white glue trousers applied. Once white glue begins to harden shape with suitable folds and apply futher glue if necessary.

To get the right thick consistency, leave the white glue in a container with the top removed overnight.



Once the trousers have dried, paint basic uniform colour, drybrush, detail, varnish and base according to your preferences
